policy in dealing with iraq and afghanistan? if you're not satisfied, what do you think president obama and his advisors should consider in the way of changes? dine: i am not satisfied. as a libertarian i seek a world at peace with other nations. i believe, i look to thomas jefferson's quote for inspiration on foreign policy. peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations ending tangling alliances with none. i think america should stop acting a the world's policeman and take care of our orders and secure our country first. i do believe in a strong national defense but the optimism word is defense, not offense. we don't have the machine any to continue the wars. we're wasting over a trillion since 2001 on just on bombs. i think our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> moderator: todd akin. akin: it is important to have a tore run policy to start with. you have to so have basic principles and guidelines and perspectives where you want to go as a president in terms of foreign policy. that needs to include iraq. it needs to include afghanistan. it needs to include a who

[applause] and when our troops come home, and they take off their uniform, we will serve them as well as they have served us because if you served our military -- [applause] a few protected our people, if you fought for our freedom, you shouldn't have to fight for a job when you come home.

.s. ambassador to iraq and also head of the u.s. delegation on talks with north korea and its nuclear issue. now he is the dean of the school of international studies, university of denver. good to see you, chris. first of all, i want to play a bit of sound prosecute president ahmadinejad here because he really is setting the stage hoor for what we think is going to be a conflict, but also i want to talk a little bit about israel and whether or not they see an attack on iran as an opportunity. what do we -- what do we thif the language from ahmadinejad and from netanyahu, whether or not that is really going to happen? >> i'm sorry. were you going to play the tape? >> no. chris, if you could, explain to us -- i know that ahmadinejad has already made some comments and he is saying here that he believes that potential of war with iran could be inevitable. do we think this is just a bunch of bluster. we've heard this from him before. >> well, there's certainly a lot of bluster. i mean, if there were an israeli strike, it would not be to change the hearts and minds of the iranians. it would be a sort
the war in iraq. i did. i said we'll go after al qaeda. they've been decimated. bin laden is gone. if governor romney is suggesting to start another war, he should say so. >> we also have to communicate that israel is our ally. our close ally. the president's decision not to meet with bibi netanyahu, prime minister of israel, when the prime minister is here for the united nations session, is a mistake and sends a message throughout the middle east that we somehow distance ourtselves from our friends. >> joining us right now is johnny goeshen and joel ruben. thank you for your time. you heard mitt romney speaking the talking point of the day and perhaps now in the next 24 hours, especially given these new comments from ahmadinejad that are no surprise and no different than what he said in the past. >> they're really no surprise, and they were disgusting and they should be condemned and they are being condemned. tomorrow when the president goes and speaks before the general assembly, he's going to really set the stage, as he said and as he has for the past four years about america's
. >> well, let's see what i've done since i came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they've been decimated in the fatah. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy, and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so, you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> alex, what's he trying to do there? >> well, first i think what the president is trying to do is, you know, there's been a very consistent critique of his performance on foreign policy from the right, that the obama administration has not been supportive enough of allies like israel, has not been assertive enough with iran. what obama's trying to do is claim a sort of aggressive middle ground that would force romney in order to make that criticism of the white house, would force romney to take some positions that are just a little bit out of step with where americans are. americans, after iraq and afghanistan, there is a sense, i think, there's not a huge appetite for more military ac
and jordan and iraq and syria and lebanon and saudi arabia and united arab emirates. my experience with muslim countries is not as extensive than that of president obama. but his experience with israel is no where close to mine. i have made extensive trips dating back to 1973. he visited once very briefly for a day mostly to jerusalem when he was a cand date and spent part of the day meeting with palestinian leaders. i understand something that i truly don't think that the president does. that is israel is not fighting for a few extra acre or square miles of real estate. it is not in a battle to get more foreign aid or protect the exports to the united states and not merely fighting for its life as a sovereign nation and protect the economy and borders. it is it fighting for the very existence of the jewish people. jews have been hunted and marked for anilation for over 2000 years and within many of the life time of the present day jews members of the holocaust is first hand for those alive. they are one generation away from partners and that were murder said and what iran vowed th
enemie enemies. >> i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they've been decimated in the fatah. that we would go after bin laden. he's gone. if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. >> the president will be in new york today for the united nations general assembly. >> so will she or won't she? the big question. if secretary of state hillary clinton plans to run in 2016, she's playing it close to the vest. and if you think her husband might have a clue, think again. >> she's tired. she's worked hard. i think she's done a fabulous job. i'm very proud of her. but she wants to take some time off, kind of regroup. write a book. i have no earthly idea what she'll decide to do. >> no earthly idea. hillary clinton will be speaking this morning in new york at her husband's eighth annual clinton global initiative. >> before he said she plans to retirement that's a subtle shift. >> that's what she says. she will take the time off. well-deserved time off. >>> houston police are defending the fatal shooting this weekend o
making a mistake when 1981 they bombed the reactor in iraq. they spread the program out and brought in the russian scientists from other countries as well. it's a very sophisticated effort and they've adopted a long-term missiles to carry the atomic devices. they're very determined to become an atomic power and it's important to remember what atomic powers to. they don't fit to make atomic bombs. they threaten to do so and extract the concessions of the threats and when i took to the officials in bahrain and saudi arabia the are equally terrified as israelis and they know what kind of concessions the persians are going to demand, and they are not going to be small in their edition. >> host: frightening. let's move on to fast and furious where the inspector general's report eric holder and the president talked about waiting for the verdict on what actually happened to the fast and furious subornation but this is another example of the deficiencies in obama's leadership in particular dealing with a subordinate in this case the attorney general of the united states, personal friend of

on the ground changes. i spent a lot of time in iraq and as we were transition, we looked closely at the security procedures at our consulates and embassies, so i expect in the aftermath of these incidents, there will be another review and steps will be taken to improve security where needed. >> let's talk about libya and the mixed messages. it still seems confusing to me. on the 16th of september, our ambassador called the attacks spontaneous. jay carney agreed. then called it a terrorist attack and today during a taping for the view, the president said it wasn't just a mob action. after 13 days, shouldn't be know, especially given the libyan government has been very consistent from the beginning in saying this was preplanned. >> i think there's a lot of conflicting evidence. i'm not privy to classified information on this. even if was, i guess i couldn't tell you about it. my sense is that this was a spontaneous event, that some actors took advantage of. to commit an act of terrorism. now, i think we're still sorting through how much was preplanned, but clearly, they took advant
governor romney spend more in taxes to iraq have to pay more in federal income-tax is under the brand new overall that you are talking about for the tax-cut? they're going to get rid of some deductions, although they have not exactly late at which deductions are on the way out. back to you. cheryl: that's the big question, but at least the tax returns came out on friday. great interview exclusively talking to fox business. thank you very much. meanwhile, president obama may have the upper hand in ohio, but can he keep that momentum going? with more on this, guidance and commander for town hall the outcome is here. democratic strategist and senior vice president of global strategy group. i want to start with you. at this point in ohio if you look just at the numbers in ohio, the president is waiting. and romney has a fairly decent cap that he has for phil here. does he stand a chance? >> definitely. at think it's going to be a knife fight down the very final stretch, the quote that i got from our romney campaign when i spoke to them at rodney headquarters last week. it will be very close,
've done since i've came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they have been decimated in the fatah. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy, and it's one that the american people largely agree with. you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> we're going to get to iran as well. the candidates were asked about that. but quickly, richard, on this question, explain the fine line the president is walking here, answering it. >> well, the president is out there defending his record. can i make a slightly related point on foreign policy? what's interesting to me is there's an area of overlap. the president goes out and says the egyptians are neither allies or adversaries. they're in between. if you heard romney last night, we've got to test the egyptians, see how they do with israel, how they treat christians and other groups within the society. we want so see whether they provide protection for our diplomats. he's basically saying this relationship is
't know much about the country inhabits who are these freeload sners the iraq war veteran who goes to the v.a., the stoo unt going to get a loan for college. the retiree on social security or medicare. i think he's a kind, decent man who pretends to be something he's not. he's running a depressingly inept presidential campaign. your entitlement reform ideas are great. but when will the incompetence stop? >> i'm sitting there while he's talking, can't fake it. if you don't have the passion for those type of guns, you can't write tom clancy novels, mitt romney does not have a passion for the kind of stuff he's talking about. he's a problem-solver. he's a nonideological person running in an extremely ideological age. he's faking it. he should be a power-point guy, saying i'm making a sales pitch to the country. you don't have to love me. i would do a more wonky and detailed thing than he's done so far. >> do you have to look at the 47% comment, that went beyond political analysis and said it was political analysis, not a governing philosophy. this was inelegant. do you have to somehow
just for veterans coming home from iraq and afghanistan. republicans did filibuster it. i think two or three republicans broke ranks a voted with democrats. and this was a classic case of republican -- it was a great idea, and everybody wants to help the veterans but the republicans don't want to help barack obama get another victory for the election and mitch mcconnell basically said that, that they were all for this, but they are not going to do it now because it would look good for president obama. >> yes and i didn't even see it. >> bill: yeah, it was politics over policy, and it is regretful. nancy pelosi was optimistic friday that democrats were going to be able to win the house. and she said if democrats win by ten. they get the house back. >> i think democrats have a chance to gain seats, and that's the kind of reality of it. but they don't have a chance to get the house. i think it is more like 35 to 40 seats they would need to win back the house. that's a tall task. but weird things happen in politics. i don't think this is going to be one of the things
policy record. he listed accomplishments on "60 minutes" such as ending both the war in iraq and the threat from osama bin laden. the president meets with world leaders later today. and he will address the u.n. generalcy assembly tomorrow. but mitt romney is accusing president obama for allowing chain to steal american idea and jobs. >> fewer americans are workerring today than when president obama took office. it doesn't have to be this way. >> the ad criticize us the obama administration for not labeling china as a currency manipulator. the. >>> more details on when president obama and mitt romney will face off in formal debates. they will take on the economy and other issues next wednesday, october 3rd in denver. the debate on october 11th in kentucky and the presidential candidates will have a town hall style meeting and in new york, the final debate is on october 22nd in florida. >>> there is a new book out about rick perry's campaign. the author wants to know why he made so many mistakes and misstatements during the campaign. one occurred during a debate in michigan. >>
. he ended the war in iraq -- megyn: excuse me, let me -- come on now. >> excuse me, let me finish. megyn: we're not looking back over three years to talk about a history lesson. the question is, is it fair for him to criticize to meet with the ladies of "the view"? >> we ought to talk about what the benefits are to the american people and how the american people -- megyn: you know what, bernard? as the anchor, i will decide what we ought to talk about because my producers and i spend a lot of time in the morning -- >> megyn. megyn: i want to give you the floor, but i want you to stay on point. >> with all due respect, i'm talking about what the american people should be talking about. we should look at what the results have been, what this president's been able to deliver in terms of foreign policy. even your fox news poll has a 54-39 advantage over mitt romney when it comes to foreign policy. so, obviously, whatever this president is doing to end wars, get rid of usama bin laden, take out terrorists is working. megyn: i just don't think you do president obama any favors in arguin
of iraq, that looks forward to getting out of afghanistan and welcomes a declining american position in the middle east and globally. cheryl: you brought up egypt. i want to ask you about the muslim brotherhood. there's a feeling now that mohammed is much more aggressive than many analysts had expected him to be. do you think this is a concern that mr. obama needs to address tomorrow? >> it should be because what morsi has said i want more support for a palestinian state and yet it was president obama in that famous cairo speech in 09 that said i will pay more respect to the muslim world and do more for palestinians. when you see weakness in a weak leader and he makes concessions it doesn't satisfy you, it simply feeds the desire for more concessions. i think that's what morsi's statement yesterday means. cheryl: one of the things with the general assembly this week is this president is really going to be attacked on all sides frankly by dignitaries that will be coming to new york talking to the press and they will all say that this president is not doing enough in the middle east an
about the middle east and about afghanistan and iraq and america's response to 9/11. you think you're dealing with a perfectly rational world leader espousing a view shared by many other leaders in that region. but there are moments of real agitation, particularly when you get to israel. and there's no doubt that he believes, as he said, that israel has reached what he perceives to be the end of their line. and he's calling their bluff. he's saying, look, they say i am enriching uranium to produce a nuclear bomb. and i'm not. now, he's calling their bluff. he's saying, if they do air strikes against me, i will hit back because what they are saying i'm doing with this uranium is not true. >> you'll remember a few years ago, columbia university said there were no gay people in iran. you raised that whole issue about gays in iran with him. what did he say about that? what did he say about the holocaust? in the past, he's denied 6 million jews were killed during the holocaust? >> i repeatedly asked him the same question -- do you believe, mr. president, that more than 6 million jews we
